module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

  1. Description
  2. Setup - The basics of getting started with rocketchat
  3. Usage - Configuration options and additional functionality


Rocketchat provided a simple docker-compose file in their site but it is too open for me. Although this module is also a very basic setup using standalone MongoDB replicaSet cluster with Authentication, it could be a start. All the certificates used here are self signed. You can provide your own by replacing the secret file.


one gotcha here is to change SElinux to be permissive

# /opt/puppetlabs/bin/facter os.selinux
  config_mode => "enforcing",
  config_policy => "targeted",
  current_mode => "permissive",
  enabled => true,
  enforced => false,
  policy_version => "31"

or just type 'setenforce 0' before you run puppet agent

If not, you might experience permission denied errors like below:

Attaching to mongodb
mongodb       | find: '/data/db': Permission denied
mongodb       | chown: changing ownership of '/data/db': Permission denied

Setup Requirements OPTIONAL

in order to use eyaml, you need to install or provide in your puppetfile -- voxpupuli/hiera-eyaml To manual install, you can follow this =>


just change the secrets.yml

to encrypt:
# String (encrypting usernames)
  /usr/local/bin/eyaml encrypt --pkcs7-public-key=/etc/puppetlabs/puppet/eyaml/public_key.pkcs7.pem -o string -s "string"
# Password (will get prompted to enter a string --encrypting passwords)
  /usr/local/bin/eyaml encrypt --pkcs7-public-key=/etc/puppetlabs/puppet/eyaml/public_key.pkcs7.pem -o string -p
# Files (encrypting keys)
  /usr/local/bin/eyaml encrypt --pkcs7-public-key=/etc/puppetlabs/puppet/eyaml/public_key.pkcs7.pem -o string -f $file

after replacing secrets, run 'puppet agent -t'
